Wasteland 4 is a post-apocalyptic RPG series that started in 1988 and has three sequels, Wasteland 2, Wasteland 3, and a remaster of the original game. The series is known for its open-world exploration, turn-based combat, branching storylines, and dark humor. The games are set in a world devastated by a nuclear war, where the survivors have to deal with various factions, mutants, robots, and other threats.

The latest game, Wasteland 3, was released in 2020 and received critical acclaim for its improved graphics, gameplay, and story. The game takes place in Colorado, where a team of Desert Rangers has to help the local ruler, the Patriarch, in exchange for resources and support. The game also features a co-op multiplayer mode, where two players can control their own squads and make decisions that affect the outcome of the game.

But what about the future of the series? Is Wasteland 4 coming? And if so, where will it be set?

Wasteland 4 Kansas

There is no official confirmation of Wasteland 4 yet, but there are some hints and rumors that suggest that the next game might be set in Kansas. In Wasteland 3, there are several references to the Eastern Plains, a region that includes Kansas and Nebraska, where a number of warlords and gangs are fighting for power and resources. One of the main characters, Ironclad Cordite, is a former leader of one of these gangs, the Scar Collectors, who was exiled by his rival, Liberty Buchanan, the daughter of the Patriarch. Cordite has a personal vendetta against Liberty and wants to return to the Eastern Plains to reclaim his throne and unite the gangs under his banner.

Depending on the player’s choices, Cordite can either be killed, recruited, or betrayed in Wasteland 3. If he is recruited, he can become a potential ally or enemy in the endgame, depending on whether the player supports or opposes the Patriarch. If he is betrayed, he can escape and vow revenge against the Rangers. In any case, Cordite’s fate and the situation in the Eastern Plains are left unresolved by the end of Wasteland 3, leaving room for a possible sequel.

Some fans have speculated that Wasteland 4 might follow the Rangers as they travel to the Eastern Plains to deal with Cordite and the other warlords, or to establish a new base of operations there. The Eastern Plains could offer a new and different setting for the series, with its own factions, locations, and challenges. The game could also explore the consequences of the player’s actions in Wasteland 3, and how they affect the balance of power in Colorado and beyond.

Of course, this is all just speculation, and there is no guarantee that Wasteland 4 will ever be made, let alone set in Kansas. However, there is some hope for the fans of the series, as the developer, inXile Entertainment, was acquired by Microsoft in 2018, and is now part of the Xbox Game Studios. This means that the studio has more resources and support to work on their projects, and that Wasteland 4 could be a potential exclusive for the Xbox and PC platforms. Moreover, the studio has expressed interest in continuing the series, and has hinted that they have some ideas for the future.

In a 2020 interview with [Game Informer], Brian Fargo, the founder of inXile and the creator of Wasteland, said that he would love to make Wasteland 4, and that he has a “really killer idea” for it. He also said that he would like to make the game more accessible and appealing to a wider audience, without compromising the core elements of the series.
